About this title


Drama, when integrated well into a curriculum, can bring empathy, excitement, expression, and engagement to any lesson. Drama at the Heart will help teachers to work successfully with drama in their classrooms in a rewarding and holistic way.

Nell Smyth begins by considering what it means to be a drama teacher. Whether for a single lesson or for a whole touring production, this comprehensive book guides teachers through the challenges and the details, from breathing exercises and ice-breaking games to finding the right play for a particular age group, as well as all aspects of rehearsal and production. It is packed with practical and down-to-earth advice, helpful tips and funny stories, all based on Nell Smyth's extensive experience. Drama at the Heart is an invaluable, one-stop handbook.

Throughout this warm and practical book, the reader is reminded about what truly makes a successful production―a joyful, thriving child or teenager at the heart of it.
